[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Threskiornis aethiopicus - Kutsal Aynak [TR], African Sacred Ibis [EN]was one of my dream species. Probably escaped single was found in Turkiye two years ago. But I couldnt see it.
In last January 19-25, 2012, we (with Mustafa Sözen and Mehmet Ali Öktem) visited United Arab Emirates and we saw more than one hundred bird species, with 40 spp new to me. I already posted some of them to TN.
I hope you will also like this bird. Best wishes.

Hello Ahmet,
Fantastic photo of this Sacred Ibis with chick. Great sharpness, details and an excellent timing. Colours and white balance are gorgeous. Taken from a very good POV in a fine composition.

Very endearing capture of baby Ibis with its mother, Dr Ahmet.
The image has acquired a grand quality by virtue of a blue sky forming the background.
Despite all black head, the eye of the bird is clearly visible.
Thanks and regards.

Ahmet hocam selamlar,
Farklı ve çok güzel "İbis", türü ..
Umarım yavru İbis, ailesinden sağlıkla ayrılır ve uçar. Kompozisyon ve gökyüzü fonu ile natural renkler yakışmış.
Emeklerinize sağlık,

Hello Ahmet,
Very unique and interesting looking bird. What fascinates me the most is the way the long bill seems to be an extension of it's face. I'm sure it is just the solid black coloring that makes it look this way, but it is hard to see where the facial features end and the bill begins. Awesome shot!!
You have captured exceptional detail and just the right amount of exposure. Great work!!
